     Essay Intro Example

    Question: Describe the main differences between the economies of the northern and southern colonies in the early 1700's. Include:

    a. What was produced

    b. Where people lived/their environment

    c.  the role of enslaved Africans

    d. impact of their livelihood on their economy


              The 1700's era marked a beginning of a new life for large numbers of European immigrants who traveled to North America. The diverse immigrants helped create a unique population in the northern and southern colonies which dominates the American population today.  Though the southern and northern colonies thrived with immigrants, both differed in what was produced, the environment they lived in and the role of enslaved Africans. The impact of their livelihood on their economy had the greatest impact and demonstrated the greatest difference between the north and south. These distinctive differences between the south and the north began to shape our developing new nation.

    Note that: The writer gives background information about the period of time and mentions all their talking points. Then ends with the last sentence as their thematic sentence which is the question reshaped or restated in their own words.
